There is a port, misc/pinfo, that I find helpful for reading an info file in the absence of KDE and Konqueror that I had years back with Linux Slackware.

Otherwise, I find info user-hostile, plain text would be better.  Many times, I went through an info file as straight text with "less" and found that better than info.
